We joined Matthew for the Apartheid to Freedom tour and we’re not disappointed. The tour provided great insight and information about the city’s history. Matthew is very knowledgeable and welcomes questions along the way. We’re going back again this afternoon for another tour!

Took the city history tour which was a great way to get a feel for the city’s layout and how it grew over time. Helped provide context for the rest of our visit.
